Columbia, SC — Richland County

Affordable Housing Partners is using a $77,371,193 bond issued through the South Carolina Jobs-Economic Development Authority (JEDA) to finance a new affordable workforce housing community in Columbia.

The proceeds of the bond will be used to finance costs to acquire, construct, and equip the Silver Station Apartment Homes, a 240-unit apartment community with a clubhouse, pool, playground, and other recreational areas on Farrow Road in the capital city.

“We’re pleased we were again able to access JEDA financing to help us expand the availability of critically needed affordable workforce housing for people living and working in Columbia, South Carolina,” said Doug Boggs, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of developer Pedcor Companies and Board Treasurer for non-profit Affordable Housing Partners, both based in Carmel, Ind.

“Tax-advantaged financing for affordable workforce housing is particularly crucial in today’s economic environment. JEDA is pleased to again work with committed developers to help provide such options here in the Palmetto State,” said Jesse Smith, Executive Director of JEDA in Columbia.
